5DtoRGB converts Canon EOS series video files to
ProRes QuickTime files or high-quality DPX sequences.

5DtoRGB is an awesome tool that extracts every last drop of video quality from cameras that record to the AVC/H.264 video format. Cameras like the Canon EOS series of HDSLRs record video in this format with subsampled YCbCr color. Because of this compression, the video is at risk of massive quality loss during the post production pipeline. By using a very high quality conversion process, 5DtoRGB gets you as close as possible to the original data off the camera's sensor while putting the brakes on any additional quality loss. In short, it'll make your footage look just plain amazing!

In fact, you could argue that they're even better than the camera originals since they've undergone high quality chroma smoothing (which you can disable if you want, but you shouldn't).

5DtoRGB Features:
Panasonic Lumix GH1 support (video only)
Full support for Canon 5D Mark II and 7D
Higher quality output than Canon's E1 plugin [compare]
Higher quality output than QuickTime Player or FCP [compare]
ProRes 4444, 422 HQ/LT/Proxy Support
DPX output for visual effects / green screen work
Raw YCbCr output option for unprocessed luma channel extraction
Output luminance matte as an alpha channel (ProRes 4444 only)
Timecode support (extracts Exif timestamp from THM files)
